I am thinking of taking an old (Used) toilet and putting it out on a street and painting a white start line next to it. I will use an official timer to time my world record for circling a toilet. I can then post my wold record of facebook/ you tube, etc. Imagine all the accolades I will get. Maybe someone will post on bike forums.

Yup it's goofy, but I guess I'm in the camp of it's a fun story, and it made me smile, and I believe it's better in life to be positive about things rather than being a grumpypuss.

It has a press-fit bottom bracket...no thanks!!!

That is actually really cool congrats to them, that has to be some serious work to do at that scale and took a ton of planning.
